I've been trying to decide if I can see enough of a difference in video quality to use MPC-HC/Lav/MadVR over WMC. I love the simplicity of WMC, but not at the expense of quality. I currently rip to MKV and use Shark007 to play blu ray rips in WMC.
WMC looks much better than MPC-HC -- but that's because I apparently have my tv set to torch mode to compensate for WMC being so dark. MPC-HC looks awful because my tv is so bright.
Why is WMC so dark? Is it a setting? Or is there a setting in MPC-HC I'm missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
